Trusted Dickson Family Dentistry
Our Dickson family dentist is committed to helping every member of your family achieve better dental health and a happier smile. We have an experienced team to provide high-quality general dentistry services, such as comprehensive exams, X-rays, cleaning, fillings, root canals, and tooth extraction. As a modern dental practice, we use the best dentistry methods and offer a full range of services under one roof. Our services also include cavity fillings, dental crowns, dentures, periodontal care, and more.
We believe that there are benefits to parents and children going to the same dentist. It helps kids understand the process and have less anxiety while also understand how important it is to go to the dentist. Kids are much more likely to take good care of their teeth if they see their parents doing the same.
Dickson Dentistry For Children
Dr. Gatgens know the challenges of keeping kids' teeth healthy, and they also know how important it is. Visits to the dentist when a child is young will affect how your child views the dentist for their entire lives. Dr. Gatgens can’t wait to partner with you as a parent to give your children the gift of a cavity-free mouth for life.
Our team works hard to ensure that you and your child are comfortable in our office and during your visit. We tailor the experience to the age of the child and make sure we meet their unique needs. We will watch how your child’s mouth and teeth grow to catch any problems early. As your child grows, we will begin fluoride treatment and dental sealants to keep the enamel healthy. If your child does have a cavity, we will use a dental filling or crown to fix the problem. We will take special care during these appointments to make sure that your child is comfortable, and if needed, we will give them laughing gas to ease their anxiety.
Dickson Restorative Dentistry
Restorative dentistry can positively impact your dental and overall health by solving a wide range of dental concerns. With restorative dentistry, we can replace missing teeth, provide dental implants, offer dental crown and bridge therapy, fit full or partial dentures, and offer periodontal care for gum disease. Our team can help relieve the discomfort of a toothache, cavity, root canal, or tooth loss by healing your smile and restoring functionality.
Dental Implants: Dental implants are a great looking, comfortable way to fill in gaps left by missing or damaged teeth. To start the process, Dr. Gatgens will refer you to an oral surgeon who will place metal rods in your jaw. Once you have healed, Dr. Gatgens will finish the process by attaching your crown. A significant benefit of dental implants is that they don’t require your new tooth to be connected to another tooth, and there will be no gaps or spaces for bacteria to collect.
Dentures and Partials: Modern dentures are designed to fit flawlessly into your natural smile so no one will have any artificial teeth. Dr. Gatgens will work hard to create dentures or partials that are custom fit to your restorative dental needs. Full dentures replace a full row of teeth, and partials replace up to 3 teeth. Both are easy to remove and clean and won’t get in the way of your lifestyle.
Crowns and bridges: Crowns are caps that we use to cover weakened, damaged, or discolored teeth. They make your teeth stronger and more aesthetically appealing. Bridges are used to replace one or more missing teeth. A false tooth is attached to crowns that are fixed on surrounding teeth. They are a tremendous natural-looking solution.
